   John W. Woell

John W. Woell John W. Woell is Assistant Dean of the Lloyd International Honors College, where he teaches interdisciplinary courses, works with Honors Liaisons and students to promote disciplinary honors and undergraduate research, and coordinates Honors College events. He came to UNCG after serving as faculty, department chair, and director of the honors program at Greensboro College. His book, Peirce, James, and a Pragmatic Philosophy of Religion, is due out in April 2012 and explores the relationships among contemporary realisms, antirealisms, and early American pragmatism on the nature of inquiry and belief. Other research interests include religion in American public life, theories of truth, the relationship between belief and action, and meaning in religious language. In the Honors College, he teaches interdisciplinary courses that integrate resources and readings from philosophy, literature, religious studies, history, and art around a particular topic—such as truth, torture, politics, or knowledge. The Claremont Graduate University granted his Ph.D. in Religion with a specialization in philosophy of religion, and he holds masters degrees in philosophy and religion from the Claremont Graduate University and Vanderbilt University respectively. His undergraduate work in Christ College, the honors college of Valparaiso University, instilled in him an academic wanderlust from which he has yet to recover.
